“Making and Doing” at 4S Meeting (Denver): Let’s extend the experiment!

Abstract : In this report from the 4S Annual Meeting in Denver (2015) we highlight the dynamics of the “Making and Doing” Programme. Conceived as a response to a growing trend among STS scholars in engaging in scholarly practices that produce and express STS knowledge beyond the traditional outputs, it took the form of an interactive exhibition. Projects’ initiators engaged dialogue with the audience, through original performances or carriers (websites, paperwork, videos, etc.). We shortly describe 15 initiatives (among 50) which have been embraced by collectives of all types and illustrate how STS insights are applied and implemented in practical processes of production, diffusion and utilisation of science and technology. We suggest to renew the experiment, in order to feed our common knowledge base with STS projects than can also used as case studies in courses and training sessions.
